Ain't that a shame! Personally, I think even low-budget game shows and kiddie series are worth preserving. Look at DuMont's "Sense and Nonsense" and you'll see what I mean. It's cheap, but it's so damn entertaining! The episode(s) which exist just leave you wanting more. Which brings up an interesting point: In the long-run, a cheap game show can be more entertaining and historic than some costume drama or high-brow sitcom.

You are correct! Sense and Nonsense is classic! Thank you for uploading all of these great Dumont shows, failed pilots and rare game shows. Where do you get all of this stuff?

I get them from the following places:
Shokus Video for most of the 'Live TV' except "Rocky King";
Alpha Video for "Rocky King" and most of the "Filmed" TV series;
Misc budget DVDs for common stuff;

Plus the "Match Game" episode came from a "proper" DVD, indeed I'm shocked that it's been commercially released.
